    Summary

    In the end both Jack and the scientists had to compromise. Jack didn’t want to lose memories again, which meant they couldn’t just use the brain scans Nakayama had made. So, they scanned Rhys’s brain while Jack took his body over, and cadged that together with the scans Nakayama had used to produce the AI to begin with.

    Creating Jack’s body was every bit as difficult, because the fast travel stations and New-U stations auto-deleted their information every few hours to keep from filling up their memory, and the Vault Hunters had smashed the one nearest to the Vault anyway to keep Jack from using it. It seemed like they might hit a dead-end.

    Finally, Jack himself discovered scans of his whole body among Nakayama’s other Hyperion files. He wasn’t happy finding them, because the implications of why they were there were unsavory. But at least it meant the scientists had something to work with.

    Using those, programmed with Jack’s genetic code and the scans of Rhys and Jack’s combined brains, the science team digistructed a new body, removed the AI from Rhys, and hoped.

    It worked.

    Or at least, it seemed to.

    Summary

    "Jack was a pretty good guy (all the murdering people notwithstanding), and they trusted each other (didn’t they?), so he could maybe just look the other way while Rhys took care of this and then they’d never have to talk about it, right?

    Right?

    Right.

    God, Rhys hopes he’s right."

    In which Rhys is not right, but Handsome Jack still gives him everything he ever wanted. Sort of.

    Summary

    Sunsets on Pandora range from having the soothing cathartic effect that one would expect from witnessing the sun change the sky’s colours for a few crucial moments of the day to instilling nothing but chilling, panic inducing fear at the thought of the wildlife that came to life at night. Skags, Rakks, bandits, the creatures of the day all have to sleep at some point. It’s waking those who slept during the day that scare some who inhabit Pandora.

     

    Vaughn, on the other hand, feels nothing.

    To bridge the gap between The Vault Of The Traveler episode and the Commander Lilith DLC. Vaughn's acting strange, and why?
